Castorland – Wastewater Collection & Treatment

BCA worked with the Village of Castorland to bring its wastewater collection and treatment facilities into compliance with its State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit. BCA performed a complete inspection of the collection system to verify the suspected I&I and to recommend improvements to fix the most obvious sources. These improvements across the collection system have resulted in a wet weather flow reduction of approximately 30%. The treatment facility now uses a new aerated lagoon system.

Inlet – Wastewater Collection and Treatment

BCA worked with the Town of Inlet on the design and construction of a new wastewater collection and treatment facility in its hamlet.  The majority of residents and businesses previously discharged their sewage into septic systems that reportedly were discharging directly to surface waters or indirectly through groundwater into the Fulton Chain of Lakes.  A new treatment facility with a sequencing batch reactor utilizing UV disinfection and collection system was built in 2014.

Windsor – Wastewater Treatment

ACEC NEW YORK PLATINUM AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN 2011 BCA worked with the Town of Windsor to design and construct a new wastewater collection and treatment facility. The creative funding package required to complete this project included over $3,000,000 in grant sources from USDA Rural Development, Appalachian Regional Commission, NYS Financial Assistance to Business Grant, and local Government Efficiency grants, as well as $7,000,000 in low interest loans through USDA Rural Development and the Clean Water State Revolving Fund Program.

Deferiet Waterworks

BCA worked with the Village of Deferiet on the completion of a comprehensive study to determine the feasibility of a joint water system improvement project. BCA assisted the Villages in securing a $2 million grant and 0% interest loan from the NYS EFC DWSRF program. A $622,000 grant from USDA Rural Development and $400,000 grant from the Local Government Efficiency Programs were also secured to complete the needed improvements. The joint project involved the construction of a shared glass-lined elevated tank to serve both the Village of Deferiet and the Village of Herrings (now the Town of Wilna).

Sackets Harbor – Wastewater Treatment Plant

2011 APWA ENVIRONMENTAL PROJECT OF THE YEAR BCA has been working with Sackets Harbor since 1970. BCA designed significant upgrades to their Wastewater Treatment Plant, constructing a new sequencing batch reactor plant and also incorporating a belt filter press for sludge management.  The new plant has fine bubble diffusers, premium efficient motors, drives, and blowers and has the ability to handle up to 2.8 MGD for daily peak flows.  The project included UV disinfection, solar arrays to operate the plant, and a new lift station and force main.

Philadelphia – Wastewater Treatment

BCA worked with the Village of Philadelphia on an upgrade to the collection system, and the replacement of the WWTF with a new Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) Plant. To maximize funding, the $7.7M project was split into two equal phases. Total project funding included a $500,000 USDA RD Grant, $2,000,000 NYS EFC Principal Forgiveness Grant, and a $5,200,000 NYS EFC 0% Interest Loan.

Champlain – Salt Storage Facility

BCA worked with the Town of Champlain on its most recent project, the design and construction management of a 72′ wide by 200′ long salt storage facility. BCA assisted the Town with grant and M/WBE/EEO administration and reimbursement requests. The Town completed over $100,000.00 of in-kind site work on this $860,000.00 project.

Cape Vincent – Wastewater Treatment

BCA has been working with the Village of Cape Vincent since 1970 and most recently designed the new $9,600,000 wastewater collection and treatment facilities improvement project. The collection facilities improvements consisted of replacing selected sections of existing sanitary gravity sewer mains and replacing existing deteriorated lift stations with new pumping stations and force mains. The project was financed by a $2,000,000 NYSEFC Principal Forgiveness Grant, a $1,700,000 USDA Rural Development grant, a $100,000 loan, and a $5,800,000 interest-free NYSEFC loan.
